No studies have been done on NADH and breastfeeding, so it's not known if supplementation could have any negative effects on a nursing infant. Just because NADH occurs naturally in the human body, this does not automatically mean that supplementation is safe. If you are taking NADH and breastfeeding, your healthcare provider may recommend that you stop taking supplements until after your child is weaned.

However, until more is known, it is best to avoid NADH while breastfeeding, just to be safe.
